Azure Backup Agent Points to Wrong Update

When the Azure Backup Agent program says an update is ready, it will provide a link. Today, the link points to, which redirects to KB3196148, which is the October 2016 update that we are already running.

Azure update 1

Azure update 2

To find the correct update, search for "Azure Backup Update for Microsoft Azure Recovery Services Agent" and look for recent articles. Recent updates are not shown when searching Microsoft Support or with Bing, but Google led me to the January 2017 update, KB3216528.
